've got to say, you cannot rob the people of detroit of the pension. they worked hard for these pensions. and let me tell you something, if we stand by what they take the detroit pension they will be taking our pensions. so don't think it will happen to us. if they can set a precedent, they will do it to us again. let me just tell you this. inequality is a scourge on our society. and yes, we're talking about low-wage workers making $7.25 an hour. we've got to do something about it. but there's the other side of that, the other side of that is that some people are doing pretty good. so between 1979-2007, a period, although less than 20 years, real income rose by 240% for those at the top 1%. it's a shameful thing. it is a moral issue. and we've got to fight back at this. let me tell you, our economy is capable of producing enough good paying jobs for everyone.

other races are you keeping an eye on? >> detroit where you have this -- you have had this big field of candidates. just two contenders for a job that is -- you think it is very important right now. ultimately the election itself may be less important than what happens after. germany how much power the mayor will have when there is an emergency manager with sweeping authority for turning around. and houston, where a democratic mayor is running for a third term. a nonpartisan alexian but essentially a republican opponent. when she was elected it became the largest american city. so she's likely to win another term. national politics. it's worth keeping an eye on. >> the cover politics and policy in this era of budget deficits and tightening budgets here in washington. what can mayors expect from washington if anything when it comes to infrastructure, the nuts and bolts the mayor's need to provide to their respective cities? >> you talk to mayors out in the country and at party conventions. the u.s. conference of mayors meeting in d.c. really set up with just how little support they ge
